I’ve talked a lot about adding international stocks to the USDP. Why? Because it adds diversification, which in the end means more returns for a same level of risk which obviously makes a lot of sense when working towards my passive income goals. The major problem or challenge when adding international stocks is that if they are not traded on US markets (listed or ADR’s), there is a lot more complexity and fees involved. You can end up being stuck with fx conversions, fees, taxes, etc. It kind of takes out a lot from my idea of managing a sustainable dividend portfolio in very little time. So what did I decide to do?
